Seek­ing help

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

Whilst I ap­plaud your news­pa­per for run­ning an ar­ti­cle about sui­cide aware­ness on the front page, I feel the need to point out some­thing is miss­ing.

In your ar­ti­cle, the or­gan­is­ers of the re­cent event, Lifebuoy, en­cour­age any­one feel­ing sui­ci­dal to get in touch with them for help. This sounds like a valu­able ser­vice, but where is the num­ber? There is no con­tact in­for­ma­tion ei­ther in the ar­ti­cle, or any­where else through­out the pa­per. Please, make it as easy as pos­si­ble for peo­ple who may need help, to ac­cess it. I hope the next pa­per will in­clude any and all phone num­bers, email ad­dresses and web­sites re­lated to peo­ple and or­gan­i­sa­tions men­tioned in the ar­ti­cle. I hope this in­for­ma­tion will also be added to your web­site, Face­book, etc. Put it ev­ery­where. It’s great to know there are lo­cal peo­ple ready to of­fer help to those in their dark­est times – please, help make sure they can be found by the ones that need them.
